Dark History of Penn's Woods: Murder, Madness, and Misadventure in Southeastern Pennsylvania
When ships under the command of white Europeans first sailed into the Delaware Bay in 1609, southeastern Pennsylvania's documented history of the strange and unusual began. This book tackles eight true "dark histories" from Chester and Delaware counties, which include tales of murder, witchcraft, cannibalism, tragic accidents and macabre events that actually happened in the Greater Philadelphia region. This is not a book of ghost stories; this is an exploration of the real events that led people to believe in ghosts.
Available at Amazon, Bookshop, Barnes and Noble, and more.
From The Broad Street Review:
"I didn’t want the book to end. But I must content myself by waiting for whatever Green writes next, because I’m sure it will be great. There are stories and images within this book that will haunt your nightmares, and perhaps encourage you to learn more about the rich treasures of hidden history lurking in your own backyard, wherever you live. Read Dark History of Penn’s Woods alone in bed on a dark and stormy night. I dare you." - Josh Hitchens CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW
From Philadelphia Magazine:
"Green offers some fascinating cultural analysis, quick summaries of everyday frontier life (the role of indentured servants; common funerary customs), and such phenomena as the widespread belief that touching an executed criminal’s body soon after his or her death could cure disease. (Ick!) It’s ghostly, it’s ghastly, and we guarantee some of the included photos...will stay with you long after Halloween has come and gone." - Sandy Hingston CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL REVIEW (spoiler warning)
